Yuri On Ice Book Tag {Tag Thursday}

Yuri On Ice Book Tag

Hi guys, and welcome to this very special Tag Thursday! Why is this one so special, you may ask?

Well, it’s the first time I actually made my own ORGINAL BOOK TAG! Woop, woop! As you may or may not know, I have recently fallen in love (some may call it obsessed) with a little anime called Yuri!!! On Ice. Now, I never would have guessed I would become addicted to an anime about ice figure skaters, but here I am! I saw this show mentioned on Twitter regularly and got intrigued so I checked out the first few episodes and became hooked.

It’s about Katsuki Yuri, a Japanese figure skater who lost badly in his last Grand Prix. He’s suffering from crippling self-doubt and anxiety and is thinking about retiring until a video of him skating the routine of his idol, Victor Nikiforov, goes viral and none other than Victor himself shows up to coach him. This show is just so beautiful and funny and heartwarming. Yuri is such a relatable main character and the evolution of his relationship with Victor (an actual canon LGBTQIA+ relationship) is a joy to watch. I adored the 12 episodes and am keeping my fingers crossed for a second season!

And in the meantime, why not combine two things I love and do a little Yuri On Ice Book Tag?

Here we go!

Hi, and welcome to a new Tag Thursday!

Fall is by far and wide my FAVORITE season! I mean, spring and summer are ok too (winter is just evil and turns me into a big ball of sadness), but fall is AMAZING. I love the atmosphere so much. The world gets all these beautiful colors, the air turns crisp, the clothes turn cozy and there is magic in the air. Also, there’s Halloween! Have I mentioned I love Halloween already? If not, here’s my daily exclamation: Halloween rocks!

Anyway, since I’m completely in the fall mood, I really wanted to do a fall-themed tag. And thus was discovered: the Fall Time Cozy Time Book Tag!

Original tag by Novels and Nonsense on Youtube. Watch the original video here.

Hi, and welcome to a new Tag Thursday!

I’ve been in a bit of a Harry Potter mood lately (It has been 5 months since my last movie marathon and 8 months since my last re-read), so why not remedy that by a fun tag? Any excuse to talk about Harry Potter right?

So here is the Ultimate Harry Potter Tag, with 30 questions on the books and movies. If you haven’t read or seen these, obviously there may be some spoilers.

(Also, I don’t know who originally created this tag, so if it was you, please let me know so I can credit you)

Hamilton Book Tag {Tag Thursday}

160901 Hamilton Book Tag

Hi guys and welcome to a new Tag Thursday!

I know I’m about a year late to the hype, but I’ve finally given in to the Hamilton craze. If you don’t know , Hamilton is a hip-hop musical about the life of Alexander Hamilton, who was one of The United States’ Founding Fathers.

Now, I resisted listening to the soundtrack for months, even though pretty much everybody and their dog were raving about it on social media. And then one day I was out of things to listen to, and I just decided to give it a shot. I listened to the soundtrack and thought ‘Meh… this is ok, I guess. Not really my thing though.’ But then the soundtrack came to the end and I pressed repeat. And then again. And again…

And now here we are. I listen to the soundtrack at least two-three times a week and one of my goals in life is to memorize all the words to all the lyrics. (And oh boy, there are a lot of words).

So what is the appeal of this musical? Personally, I just love the story. I didn’t think the story of an American politician living in the late 1700’s would be very interesting to me, but it is! It’s a story full of emotion: passion, drive, love, friendship, sadness, mourning, sacrifice and forgiveness. All the stuff I love in books,  put into amazing lyrics and to some catchy beats.

So why not mix two obsessions and do the Hamilton book tag? Let’s get to it!
